A Valentine’s Day post, straight from me to you! During a love reading, I’m actually not a big fan of when the Lovers card comes up. However, most people, when coming to me for a love reading, tend to expect this card because they think Lovers card is equivalent to a big “Yes!” on the relationship in question. Sadly, that’s not always the case.
When asked about a romance question and it runs along the lines of “Is this true love?”, “Is this relationship meant to be?”, etc. I am not looking for the Lovers card. I am looking for the 2 of Cups to come up. Here’s the reason why:
Take a look at the two cards shown above. If you are looking for your true love, which card would you pick? Personally, I would pick the 2 of Cups. The 2 of Cups represents seeing another person for who they are, and understanding them on every level: emotionally, spiritually, sexually, and mentally. An equal partnership. Give and take.
“The Two of Cups: a powerful bond. But between whom?”—Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Don’t get me wrong, the Lovers card isn’t a bad card to get during a romance reading… in fact, it can usually indicate passion! But the Lovers card to me is more of a quick roll in the sheets rather than lasting love. Also, the Lovers card can indicate a very important decision needs to be made: perhaps two different suitors have your attention, and you need to choose.
